Open Access: renewed agreements in 2022

17 January 2022

As of 2022, there is a new agreement with Thieme Publishers and the agreements with Springer and IOS Press have also been renewed.

The details for a new agreement with SAGE are currently under negotiation. In the meantime the agreement will be continued under the conditions of the previous agreement.

Check the Leiden Journal Browser for renewed deals to publish Open Access

The Journal Browser is an easy to use tool to check which journals guarantee high quality in combination with the possibility to publish Open Access without additional costs.

We also listed all agreements for Leiden researchers on our webpage Agreements with Publishers.


The VSNU and Thieme have made an agreement that allows corresponding authors from Leiden University/LUMC to publish their articles Open Access without additional costs.

Authors should identify themselves as eligible to Thieme by using their Leiden institutional email addresses or their up-to-date ORCID, if that publicly displays their Leiden affiliation.

All of Thieme’s English language hybrid and all full Open Access journals are part of the agreement. An overview of the journal's manuscript submission websites can be found on the Thieme – Instruction for authors pagina.
